Swede 'Virtue'

Brassica napus (Napobrassica Group), Rutabaga

Hardy Annual

Swede Virtue was bred as a culinary swede for its attractive red skin and fine grained, sweet yellow flesh. Much improved in root quality and taste than older varieties. Swede Virtue is fully winter hardy.


Companion planting: Try growing swede with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.
